We have Valentine’s Day songs that will help set the right mood for your video. Music is the backbone to Animoto videos so definitely take a few minutes to check out our tracks before choosing one.
You really only need a few photos and/or video clips of you and your loved one in your video to get them verklempt.
But if you really want to express yourself in a more meaningful way, add captions and text that let you know why you’re so smitten with them or appreciative to have them in your life. Not sure exactly what to say? We’ve come up with 30 different Valentine’s Day quotes that’ll help you share how you feel.
Schedule when your video goes out
You can schedule the day your video goes out, and through February 21, 2017, you can even send it with a special Valentine’s Day email backdrop. Get your video done now, schedule it to email on February 14th, then rest assured your Valentine will get their special video in their inbox on Valentine’s Day. We will even let you know when they watch the video!
